Because I saw Kimbra in concert a few days ago, and it was PHENOMENALthis has to be my magic song for the week. Nina Simone's "Plain Gold Ring" covered by the showstoppin' kiwi, Kimbra.

Nina's original:

This might be my favorite cover EVERof any song by any artist. She keeps the beautifully haunting mood of the original, but definitely adds her own flair of style in a way that is powerful and mesmerizing. She just owns it.

After the entire Kimbra/Mayer Hawthorne/Foster the People concert, I am positive that "Plain Gold Ring" was the best performance of the night. Even better than the polished live video above. She went BANANAS.
